思 (pronounced ‘see’) is composed of two parts: 田 and 心

田 is a pictogram and it means an agricultural field.

心 is a pictogram as well. It means heart.

Putting both together means putting your heart on

your field. The character 思 means to analyze and to think

 

明 (pronounced ‘ming’) is composed of two parts: 日 and 月

日 is the sun 月 is the moon

When you place the largest light sources together,

it’s bright, so 明 means bright and clear.

It also means to understand.

 

Chinese names are poetic by nature, and its meaning

can best be appreciated poetically.

思明, See-ming, can best be translated as

to think clearly, have bright thoughts, to think and be understood.
